has to be high. i think it means that ohio is much, much, much more of an obama state than it looks like in the polls. >> if your numbers are right, one-third of the votes are done early and two-third go to obama, mitt romney needs 60% of the remaining votes to win. >> greg: i can't believe i'm doing madonna. a phrase many men said in 1980s. she was performing in new orleans. she said to the audience basically demanding that the audience vote for obama. and to her surprise, she got booed. so this is what she said. >> dana: and people left. >> greg: they left. but they were probably disgusted by the 75-year-old's music. she said seriously, i don't care who you vote for. do not take the privilege for granted. go vote. which is a lie. of course she cares who you vote for. if you told her you were voting for romney she would stab you in the eye with her pointy breast. >> bob: dana, follow that up? >> dana: i can, because one of the privileges of being at the white house is getting to know the rooms. one is the blue room. a lot of great amazing things have happened there. we have picture
1988, i think. i mean, these are states that barack obama has never trailed in. it shows just how desperate mitt romney is because he can't compete in the swing states. this is a perfect storm that hit mitt romney this week. it showed barack obama as a commander in chief. the gallup poll was knocked off. it was his best poll. it showed the two competing businesses. not only did you have chris christie out there, but you also have bob mcdonnell of west virginia, another republican surrogate, who said the obama administration's response has been incredibly fast. >> i wouldn't go that far. they came in separately and they left separately. but sometimes governors have to do what governors do and presidents have to do what presidents do. i get that. and i think for the moment, your man probably got some. john, i want to ask you, i've been reading in the newspapers -- you correct me if i'm wrong. your superpack and other republican super packs have put $4 million into pennsylvania. team obama, only $625,000. for $4 million, jonathan, you want a rate of return better than a utility execu

in the write-up note that i do think barack obama is still ahead in the state. and as you mentioned, you can always follow their feet where they're going. mitt romney's spending a huge amount of time in ohio in the next few days, as is, i would say, barack obama. i think both campaigns recognize this is a not only a close race, because there are a lot of close races in states, but this is a place that mitt romney probably has to have. so, if ever there's going to be a place where they both fight because of the stakes are so high, i think ohio's it. i think it belongs where we now have it, which is in those eight states, ones we know, florida, new hampshire, iowa, virginia, nevada, colorado, new hampshire, i think ohio belongs in that group. i put it on myself i should have put it in there a few days before now. >> mark halperin, take a look at nbc news poll, iowa, president up but wisconsin and new hampshire, we're talking about a really closely fought race. >> based on the totality of the public and private polling the only us in is on governor romney to depp street get to 270 electoral vot
obama when he is reelected, elizabeth warren for senate. we want to hear from those in non-swing states this morning. the phone lines are open. as we are waiting for you to call, i will point to the front page of usa today. the headline -- four days to seal the deal. after a brief campaign hiatus' courtesy of hurricane sandy, president obama and mitt romney resumed campaigning. the candidate's weekend travel schedules made it clear where the election was likely to be decided. obama was slated to return to ohio today. saturday, sunday and monday. he was set to appear in iowa, virginia, wisconsin, florida, new hampshire and colorado. romney was doubled to campaign in ohio, went -- wisconsin, new hampshire and virginia. statewide polls differ on who was ahead in colorado and i what it should obama with a single digit lead in nevada and wisconsin. eight of nine surveys are the past week and a crucial ohio give obama a narrow edge. and we will be focusing on a violator in today's "washington journal." and our swing state series. we want to hear from voters and not-swing states. we want to he
, ohio, right now. our brand new cnn/orc poll shows president obama with a narrow lead in that state 50% to mitt romney's 47%. that's within the sampling error making it still effectively a dead heat. our chief national correspondent john king is joining us right now. he's in ohio as well. john, take us inside these numbers. >> wolf, they are fascinating when you look deep in this poll. the president you just showed he's here in ohio. governor romney will be here tontd. they expect some 35,000 republicans at his rally. in this part of the state i'm in cincinnati tonight. when you look deep in our poll you see this one will be fought out through the last poll closing on election night. look at these two candidates among independents. governor romney with a slight edge 48% to 46%. again, that's a statistical tie well within the margin of error. the auto bailout is one of the things the president thinks will help him here in ohio. you heard him mention that in this speech. look at this in the industrial northern part of the state, across northern ohio where you have many auto-related direc
that in 2008, there were states that then candidate obama lost on election day. but he carried them because of his campaigns early voting strategy. right now polls show that in key states like ohio, president obama leads mitt romney 2:1 or 60% to 30% with early voters. remains to be seen what strategy will seal the deal and who will win this election. but come election day, it will be clear whether the right strategy was galvanize voters early, early, early, or just hope they show up on election day. let's go to our table of experts. we -- look, this is it. 2450es are the final days. this is serious politics. so what's happening here particularly among my strategists. is it about targeting 106 counties, is it about early, early, swing voters, what is the winning strategy? >> what's going on is we have a gruff's race for ohio going on and barack obama and mitt romney are the candidates. we're dead in in terms of focusing in on specific counties because everyone's focused on ohio and i think to some degree candidates and people down at the county level in ohio may have better feel than some l
the latest polls show that the race in battle ground states like ohio have president obama leading mitt romney by five points when counting both early voters and ohioans who will actually vote on election day. but the overall race is a dead heat among ohioans who are going to cast their ballot on november 6. so how does president obama or mitt romney break the stalemate among the voters? they can basically either woo the undecideds or fire up the base. for president obama, it has become increasingly clear that the strategy is about one word, early. >> we can vote early in illinois, we can vote early in illinois. just like you can vote right now in florida. p just like you can vote early in colorado. just like you can vote early here in nevada. you can vote early. anybody who is here who has not yet voted, i want you to go vote. vote. vote. vote. vote. >> so did you get the message obama supporters some vote, vote, vote, early, early, early. it is a message directed specifically at the base. and to drive the point home about early voting, president obama went home to cast his vote this p
that we're in a tie. the swing state data showing ever so slight obama lead, within the margin of error. ohio couple points up. through the midwest, wisconsin, michigan, minnesota, a couple points up, a couple points up in pennsylvania. ever so slight obama lead there. but it could go either way. martha: monica? >> yeah. what is interesting we're seeing the traditional tightening of a race as we get closer and closer to election day. what is interesting that independent number you put you, martha, governor romney still has a very healthy lead among independents and doug mentioned the swing states, when you look at critical swing states states of ohio, governor romney is leading among independents by six points n virginia he is leading among independents by a staggering 21 points among independents. also in florida he is leading by about five points. races are won in the middle. those independents will really decide this race and they seem to be trending toward governor romney. martha: let's look at some of these other numbers. i was fascinated by these when they came out in the evening
of the race here. recent polls have shown him slightly behind romney in the sunshine state but obama supporters turned out in force the first two days of early voting. >> i understand you blew it out when it came to early votes. [ applause ] >> i'm really proud of you. >> reporter: at a field office in orlando the president said the storm will likely take up much of his time this week. >> obviously my first priority has to be to make sure everything's in place to help families and prepare. that means that that's going to be putting more burden on folks in the field because i'm not going to be able to campaign quite as much over the next couple of days. >> reporter: his campaign advisers acknowledge hurricane sandy will impact the vote. no one knows how severely. >> we believe that the more people come out, the better we're going do. so to the extent that it makes it harder, you know that's a source of concern. i don't know how all the politics will sort out. >> reporter: this is going to be a very delicate balancing act for the white house all week long. this
and on swing state, virginia. president obama resumes campaigning tomorrow, just five days before the election with appearances in green bay, wisconsin, boulder, colorado, and las vegas. unchartered waters of the two campaigns, no doubt about it. the same for election officials in some of the areas that are hit by sandy. joe johns is with us now from washington. do we have, joe, any idea, six days out, of the potential disruptions we could see on election day? >> reporter: we're at least beginning to get an outline of it, but we just won't be sure until we get to election day. we have been paying a lot of attention to the battleground states, virginia, pennsylvania, and north carolina, all in the past, if you will, of the storm. the issues are about whether early voting is affected and then what is going to happen on election day. okay, starting with pennsylvania, there is no early in person voting in pennsylvania, but the question is whether in person voting on election day might be affected in and around philadelphia. now, this was a state that was just slightly beginning to tick over to the
president obama ahead by one point. 48-47%. a national poll. the poll in the state of colorado, the new international poll shows 15% of likely polls backing obama. that's within the sampling number. 49-45, also within the margin of error. now today, governor romney's camp said he will campaign in pennsylvania on sunday. they claimed the deep blue key stone state is in play. they said the same thing in a memo but didn't cite any particular data. the obama campaign called it a sign of desperation on their part. joining me now with the raw politics, chief white house correspondent, jessica yellin, and jim acosta and correspondent john king. >> the storm has been a real curveball for candidates. how has mitt romney been handling transitioning back to regular campaign mode? does he feel that it may have stopped his momentum? >> what we saw earlier from mitt romney, he went back on offense. after dialing back his criticism of president obama in the immediate aftermath of superstorm sandy, he went on the attack. he ridiculed the idea for the secretary and he unleashed this ad. a spanish langua
now until tuesday. president obama, mitt romney plan to campaign nonstop in battleground states. today the romney campaign added a new one to the list. is that a sign of confidence or is it a bluff? we'll talk about that. try running four.ning a restaurant is hard, fortunately we've got ink. it gives us 5x the rewards on our internet, phone charges and cable, plus at office supply stores. rewards we put right back into our business. this is the only thing we've ever wanted to do and ink helps us do it. make your mark with ink from chase. governor of getting it done. you know how to dance... with a deadline. and you...rent from national. because only national lets you choose any car in the aisle... and go. you can even take a full-size or above, and still pay the mid-size price. this is awesome. [ male announcer ] yes, it is, business pro. yes, it is. go national. go like a pro. everyone in the nicu, all the nurses wanted to watch him when he was there 118 days. everything that you thought was important to you changes in light of having a child that needs you every moment. i wouldn't tr
campaigns shuffling their schedules, president obama, mitt romney. a key battleground state. a state you can bet each one of them wanted to get to. if you look at the new poll coming from your paper. mitt romney trailing the president in that state by four points as opposed to eight. the way it was recently. what do you think the storm has impact as far as key states like this? >> again, normally i would say not much. a race this tight, tightening some. any stop that president or mitt romney makes in a local area gets a lot of coverage. draws a lot of people. can be an organizing tool. having to cancel those stops can make an impact on however many were planning to attend. the buzz, they are here, sending competing messages, in terms of earned media as they call it. it's certainly going to make a difference for them. what is being talked about in virginia is largely the storm and not the campaign speeches. it could make a difference. no way to predict which way that cuts. for romney who wants to close that narrowing gap it could be he doesn't get the face time he needs, for obama, he gets to
are currently without power in delaware. now, compared to other states, that might seem like a small number but think about the population of delaware. that's a lot of people by percentage. president obama has already declared a state of emergency for delaware. >> rhode island operating under a state of emergency. the emergency management agency is warning all residents to brace for pro longed power outages there. sandy forced public schools in providence and state capital to close on monday. right now nearly 120,000 people have lost power in rhode island. so, some of new york's biggest stars are going solo because of sandy. here's something that you don't hear that often. jimmy fallon will be doing his without an audience. this should be rather interesting, or probably was interesting. as well as david letterman doing the same thing. we're not used to seeing their shoes without hearing -- no, you know what, we're not used to seeing them without hearing an audience in the background. so, the show must go on. all right. as predicted, the damage from sandy came in pretty fast. almost one righ
including some along the garden state parkway. yesterday president obama joined governor chris christie on the ground in atlantic city for an up-close look at the destruction where the storm came ashore. they also saw the damage by air. boarding the president's marine one helicopter for aerial views of the hardest-ity communities. the governor thanked the president for pledging quick federal relief to the region. it's something president obama insists will not be delayed. >> what i can promise you is that the federal government will be working as closely as possible with the state and local officials, and we will not quit until this is done. we are not going to tolerate red tape. we're not going to tolerate bureaucracy. and i've instituted a 15-minute rule essentially on my team, you return everybody's phone calls in 15 minutes. whether it's the mayors, the governors, county officials. if they need something, we figure out a way to say yes. >> and the president of the united states and i have now had six conversations since sunday. that shows to me a level of caring and concern and inte

the election day, president obama and mitt romney will both be hitting the final battleground states very, very hard. we've got a look at some new polling in a few of these states, "the wall street journal"/nbc/marist poll shows the president with a six-point lead over mitt romney in iowa, a three-point lead in wisconsin, and a very small two-point edge in new hampshire. i'm joined by mark preston live in washington. mark, there's been a lot of talk about the president's handling of hurricane sandy and how it might affect this race. we get a glimpse of what americans think about this handling in a new poll by abc/"washington post." 78% of voters approve of the president's response, 44% say they approve of mitt romney's reaction. neither candidate is seeking to politicize this were tragedy overtly. but it really does beg the question, how could this affect this race? >> it certainly puts the president in the position of being a commander in chief and being the leader at the time of a crisis. and in many ways, he's gotten a lot of support of one of mitt romney's top surrogates, and that's chris c
.9%. 2008, president obama won the state by over six percentage points, the first time a democrat won the state of virginia since 1964. joining us from the university of virginia is the director of their politics center. larry sabato, what are the issues being campaigned on in virginia? guest: the same issues as. every as the economy is for most, i suppose. if there's any special flavor into virginia, we cover all 50 states at the center for politics at the university of virginia, if there's any special flavor here, virginia depends on defense to a greater degree in than any other state except for alaska. we are second in per-capita defense expenditures. there's a special flavor on federal spending, because governmental employment is so important, not just in northern virginia, which borders on d.c., but also in hampton roads, the hampton roads area off virginia beach and the surrounding localities. host: what are the demographics of the state of virginia? guest: as with most larger population states, there are many states in one. you have northern virginia, which is about a third of
battleground state of wisconsin shows a dead heat. romney, obama, tied at 49%. so joining me now for an exclusive interview is governor scott walker, republican from wisconsin. governor walker, as always, sir, welcome back to the "kudlow report." we appreciate it. they're tied at 49% which is something of a surprise. the republicans strnts taken the state of wisconsin in a presidential election since 1492. so how does it look, how do you see it right now? >> well, i was out in green bay, wisconsin nearby where the president was today. i've been all over the state the last couple days. momentum is clearly on our side. and you expect that out of somebody advocating for candidates, but i've really seen it. we made 4.5 million voter contacts leading up to the june 5th election. we won by a bigger mar begin than we did in 2010. and that basis of support hasn't let up, that converted over to mitt romney, it got inspired when paul ryan was added to the ticket. but most importantly, the day after mitt romney had that impressive first debate in denver, we saw the phone lines lit up, we sa
electronically. president obama declaring the state of new york a disaster area because of sandy's impact, makes the state eligible for extra financial aid. it's closed most new york city tunnels and bridges as well and the mass transit biggest destruction in the 108 years the subway system has been around. will the labor department release the october jobs report scheduled friday morning? at this point the labor market it says it will make every effort to do so. as we continue to see the effects of the storm there is a chance the report could be delayed. the futures have been trading and will continue trading until 9:15. the dow futures down barely by 5 points, nasdaq off by 10.5 points, the s&p up by less than one point. >>> super storm sandy slamming the new jersey coastline hurling record breaking waves and leaving a path of destruction in its wake. the weather channel's jen carfagno joins us with the latest. >> joe, good morning, record breaking waves, record breaking surge, now seeing record breaking river levels. the delaware river set a new record. let me show you where we are with sandy
it he is coopting one of rom romm's visible surrogate and it is good for chris christie his state will go for barack obama example it is a win, win as the campaign starts today. chris christie was out and shook a lot of hand and a lot of people were waiting to see him there and there he was. watch this. >> you have to see the people that are affected by this. they need to see us. me, and the mayor and others who are going to be the folks to lead them back and rebuild this. there is no retreating from this. we'll assess the damage and rebuild. that's the way it is in new jersey. chris christy said the damage to the injuriesy shore was unspeakable. >> gretchen: in the meantime peter doocy has covered the rohobus beach in delaware. >> nationally 51 people have been kill would by sandy, including children and police officers. this morning, millions of americans are still in the dark. they don't have lights or heat which is going to be a problem on a very chilly final day of october. we learned yesterday. it will be in the first week of november before the new york city subway system.
nationally. down to the wire in a lot of battleground states. you need those two points. in 2008 when obama really blew out mccain in a lot of battleground states, it was really sort of icing on the cake to have this superior organization and there's even a political scientist who has done a study and found that obama would have won that election anyway even without this vast field organization. it probably just gave him some extra electoral votes as sort of a cushion back in 2008. >> you say the romney campaign has at least 800 offices -- obama has 800 offices compared to romney's 300. rick wiley says that this is the obama symbol of liberal big government mentality that the obama campaign thinks will put 100 offices in this state we're going to win, but we take a smaller smarter approach, he says, just like we do in government. do you think he has a point? >> well, it's certainly possible that they are just running a more efficient operation, and this is their rationale for why they have so many fewer. obama has more than three times as many field offices in ohio. more than twice as many
